Lyrebird: Book Review

Lyrebird is a story of a girl, Laura Button, hidden from the world among the wilderness who has a unique talent to mimic every sound she hears; it’s her way of connecting to the world around her. She is discovered by a documentary team who tries to give her an identity in the modern world that she’s been deprived. Laura who wants to come out of the isolation and wants to be near the sound engineer of the documentary team, Solomon, agrees to leave her familiar hills and goes to Dublin to participate in a talent hunt show. She receives an overwhelming from the audience from around the world and show producers alike. She also tastes her share of criticisms too. The story chronicles Laura’s journey into the competitive, unforgiving, modern world.

This book has given me a whole new perspective to the world I too am a part of, there were instances where I was disgusted the way the world operates. Laura’s way of connecting to the world, her perspective did not for once fail to mesmerise me while I was reading the book. We are so busy in our lives that we overlook the intricate details of the nature, of our immediate surroundings.

Laura and Solomon’s relationship is innocent, sweet, passionate and that touched me. 

Bo, the director and producer of the documentary team and also Solomon’s ex, got on my nerves. She doesn’t think how her decisions would affect others. She wants Solomon to support her but she wouldn’t listen to his advice if it’s not in her favour. She wants to do whatever she wants and no one can defy her. Because of her brilliant idea, Laura gets exploited. I don’t get irritated generally by book character but Bo, like her name, is a unique piece altogether. 
Overall reading this book was a refreshing, exotic experience.

My Rating : 4/5⭐

Easy– Book Review


I began 2016 reading challenge hosted by Popsugar  with this book.I was looking for some books that I could read for the challenge. I came across this book on some of the websites and I found appreciative reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. So I gave it a try.

The story begins with a college girl Jacqueline with whom her boyfriend Kennedy wants to break up so that he could see other girls in college. That at a frat shemeets with an unfortunate incident– Kennedy’s sex starved frat brother tries to force himself on her when some random guy comes and beats the shit out of the rapist.Later she realises that her saviour is her classmate Lucas. The story circumnavigates around Jacqueline and the two men she meets — Lucas and her Economics tutor Landon.

After reading the book, I’M IN LOVE WITH IT… A Romantic story is basically the chemistry between the lead couple and in this book, it was bang on!! My heartbeat would speed up with Jacqueline and Lucas’ proximity as if I’m in Jacqueline’s place, dating Lucas (I wish I could 😍😍).
Like Jacqueline I too am head over heels in love with Lucas. He’s a flawless mixture of perfection and flaws. He’s worthy of true love. He has a wonderful physique too. He’s very protective and moving towards Jacqueline (When will I get my Lucas????).
Also, Jacqueline is a very strong character. She’s headstrong, she does not go around showing off her power, she can feel weak at times but she knows to overcome the weakness and get back at the wrong and get justice.

A couple with two strong individuals always keeps me at awe.

This book bravely and aptly puts forth the evil of sexual harassment in the society and how we women should be prepared to protect ourselves through the characters.
The story is dreamy with touches of reality. That’s what I really enjoy.

My Rating : 4/5⭐

Whoever likes to read romance novels, I would definitely recommend this book.

P.S. After reading the book and it’s prequel which is called Breakable, I felt so happy, I emailed Mrs. Tammara Webber and I shared my feelings about the book, especially about Lucas. In reply, she gave a great advice — “Books are a wonderful escape, but they also help us decide what we want from our real lives. Think about the traits you most loved about Lucas, and you can determine to find it in someone real.(Someone kind and protective? Someone who supports your dreams as well as his own? Someone with awesome biceps, haha?) Don’t settle for less, Priya! {{{hug}}}”
